I have been collecting minerals since I was 6 years old, way back in the sixties.

Mineralogy sparked my lifelong interest in science. I live in the North East of England, so my collecting has been mostly in Weardale.

A highlight of my mineral interest was surviving several very hazardous collecting trips inside Heights Mine, long ago. My favourite location to visit is the Aeolian Islands, particularly Vulcano. I have also panned gold in Scotland, California and Australia.

I have a science website, Lateral Science.

There be dinosaurs....

The unexpected find was not the minerals, but dinosaur footprints across the bedding plane - presumably blasted to smitherines a few days later...
